OUTFITS: WHAT I WORE

how to spice up a white blouse

Spice up a white blouse

by

How to spice up a white blouse? A plain white blouse couldn’t be more basic, so how to style it into an interesting look? Well, to me a dare devil shoe is the way to go. Go for a lace up heel, preferably a flatform like I’m wearing today, or a…

pastel pink peg trousers

Pastel pink peg trousers

by

Meet my beloved pastel pink peg trousers. I know, it’s bare legs weather over here as we speak. But since ‘here’ = Holland, we’d better prepare ourselves for some temperature drops to come soon. So for today, as depressing as it might sound, some inspiration on what to wear when the…

monochrome outfit

Black & white for life

by

From an early age I’m having this enormous love affair with black and white outfits. Whether it’s fall, winter, spring or summer, black on white – or white on black – is definitely my favorite color combination. It just screams pure luxury and I love the simplicity of these colors…

fablefrique fashion blogger Frederique

Bohemian, retro & minimal

by

Hi lovely readers, how are you all on this Monday morning? ♡ The bohemian travellers trend is one that I personally identify with. Might be due to the fact that I’ve been travelling to different places when I was little and I’ve always loved meeting new people there, tasting local vegan foods; no…

Urban Outfitters Vintage Inspired denim jacket with studs

Denim all over

by

Happy Sunday! How are you? Hope you’re having a great weekend so far. As you might have noticed, I went to the puppies yesterday. And OH MY GOSH.. Please watch my Snapchat (username ‘fablefrique’) if you haven’t yet. The footage is just too cute to be true, and yet it…

camel palazzo trousers

Camel & white Reebok

by

Meetings, meetings, meetings. Let’s be honest; press meetings are almost as much about fashion as about music and drinks. Today I was tackling this day in the big city of Damsko (a.k.a. Amsterdam) in a pair of fresh Reebok kicks from Omoda. After a personal appointment – you might find…

Kissy kiss

by

Spring is here! In the Netherlands at least. Hope you’re well and are enjoying the first bursts of Spring weather. Another outfit with a pink feel to it. #sorrynotsorry If you didn’t know, now you know: it’s pink for Spring/Summer 2016. The all-out pink epidemic is spreading across social media as…

that pink sweater from H&M

Pink sweater

by

Pink tones are no longer the reserve of barbie and Chihuahua lovers.  If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I wasn’t much of a pink-clothing-kinda-girl. As it is with many things, I had and have nothing against pink, it just wasn’t the right color for me. Was. Wasn’t….

Cluse all black watch

New in: CLUSE watch

by

This baby came in a week or three ago. Oh yes, the CLUSE watches virus got me and I’ve been obsessing about these timepieces lately. They’re just the perfect mix between simplicity, elegance and edge. The watch I own is from their ‘La Bohème Full Black’ collection, which carries four all-black…

light blue flared jeans Esprit

Flared jeans & Keds

by

Flared jeans. How to wear flared jeans? Often people ask me how to wear flared jeans. I can truly understand where that question comes from, cause it can be oh-so daunting to style them at first, I know.. I would say the key is to simplify the rest of your look….

grey bomber jacket

Casual is key

by

Sometimes you don’t need that much more, casual is key. Yes I know, I’ve been dressing quite casual lately but hey, I guess seeing a casual look from time to time is tolerable right? And let’s face it, everyone has their casual days. Maybe not necessarily for over 7 days in…

denim gilet

Denim on denim

by

Denim just always works. Great denim is one of those things that never goes out of style really, it just always works. For today’s look I went for a denim on denim ensemble. Pretty basic, but edgy with the belt and oversized fit of the denim gilet. Both the jean…

Denim & parka

by

Welcome to my blog again! Denim & parka. Yes they go together. Denim jackets have always been my thing really. I wouldn’t mind walking ’round in denim jackets every day. Especially when I found myself a jacket like this one, which isn’t that much of a simple one you see. Look at the detailing, the fit,…

cognac suede jacket

A hint of hippy

by

Hej guys! It’s Friday already! How’s life treating you today? Yesterday was wearing this cognac suede jacket, which looks and feels incredible for faux suede really. I styled it in a hippy kinda way, with giant earrings, a black and gold statement necklace and a high ponytail. Might be a…

Very ready for the weekend. How about you? It’s the ultimate time for quality time with my loved ones. This weekend it’s my sister instead of my boy – who’s exploring NYC at the moment. Very happy however to have my sister here this weekend. We’ll probably be shopping all…

Cuties!   While I’m editing the pictures of a shoot I did with my mom earlier this week (you might have spotted this image on Instagram already), I was scrolling through what I was wearing over the weekend.. I thought it could be fun to highlight that look on the blog…

croc sneaker effect

Croc effect

by

Crocs.  Certainly no Crocs in my house! I rather go for a black high top sneaker with a croc texture finish, like these ones from Barons Papillom – which are half price right now. You might have spotted in yesterday’s blog post already. I got a bunch of questions on if they ship…

black fluffy coat

Black faux fur coat

by

Cold fish. I’ve been sort of living in this black faux fur coat lately, especially in the windy city of Leiden. This coat is truly perfect for me, I’m the biggest cold fish of all of my friends and family. How ’bout you? Are you a hot blooded person or…

VILA flared jeans

Red roses & flared jeans

by

 Just when I get on board with skinny jeans, flares make a come back. That’s exactly what my friend told me the other day. I told her she should better hop on to the flared jeans trend anyway, since she has impressively long legs and I mean she’d just rock any…
